In April, I celebrated the completion of my Infinity collection. All was assembled. All was painted. Then this “CodeOne” thing was released with my faction and, well, all good things must come to an end so I’m back in the thick of it.

For a while now I’ve been sitting on a project that really never went anywhere. I’d been wanting to play a western skirmish game and so I set about collecting various things I’d need to eventually set it all up but I never really got past the collection phase. Then, I saw Back to the Future Part III again and started getting the itch to finally start this venture up.
Throughout this whole pandemic, I’ve entertained myself by completing languishing paint projects or coming up with solo options for some of my favorite games. While solo games can create a rewarding experience, the real reason I game is for the social aspects so gaming without that can only sustain me for so long. After a bit of thought and prep, I decided to try something new: Remote Frostgrave.
Having completed my current wave of Infinity in April and with my gaming life still on lockdown, I spend a lot of time reading up on Infinity. I’ve come to find that even though they might not be competitive, I’m loving the big mech monsters of the game: the Tactical Armor Gear or TAGs.
I have finished up the draft of scenario 4 and ran it through some paces to make sure it initially works as expected. I had to tweak a few things but I’m happy with the final result. And of course I needed to mix up my board some more to fit the new scenario layout.
Yep 500. A good bit of that was due to a spike in April as I did those micro posts on my painting challenge but still 500 seems like a good bit of verbiage for this little site. And yet I feel like there is so much more to say, to pimp out, and to play.
The April paint challenge didn’t sap my desire to paint more minis (thankfully) and I got to work on a little Dropzone Commander Scourge unit, the Screamer.
With Infinity done I still have a lot of minis vying for attention but I turn now to one model that I thought would be the focus of this challenge until I got distracted by Infinity and ended eating up most of the month finishing up.
This model is something I’ve had for months and was probably the biggest catalyst for me to branch out into a new game system. I’d hidden him from view from my friends as I wanted to surprise them when I showed up with this badass on the field…
